Oldham appoint Frankie Bunn as new manager

Oldham Athletic have appointed former player Frankie Bunn as their new first team manager.

Bunn, who played for the Latics between 1987 and 1990, replaces Richie Wellens who was sacked last week following Oldham’s relegation from League One.

Since hanging up his boots in 1990, Bunn has coached at a range of clubs across England, including Wigan Athletic, Coventry City, Manchester City, Rochdale and most recently Huddersfield Town but this represents his first job as a permanent first team manager.

Oldham owner Abdallah Lemsagam told the club’s official website, “We are delighted to welcome Frankie Bunn to the club as first team manager.

“He knows the club very well from his playing time here and he has a wealth of experience working with young talent which has impressed me.

“I believe he can take the club forward and give Boundary Park something to cheer about.”
